President Garfield's Assassin. After he was executed, the National Museum of Health and Medicine was under mandate to perform autopsies on criminals in an attempt to find 'anatomical abnormalities' in criminals. A grossly enlarged spleen was the only thing they discovered. His skeleton, spleen and brain are in storage at the museum. They also have the segment of President Garfield's spine through which Guiteau's bullet passed, killing the president.
